Valorant, the popular first-person shooter developed by Riot Games, may be launching its mobile version in mid-2023, according to recent reports. While many gamers are excited about the prospect of playing the game on their mobile devices, some are expressing concern over how Riot Games will maintain the competitive nature of the 5v5 gameplay in the mobile port. Recently, a Twitter user known as ValorantMLeaks claimed that Tencent Games, the core developers of popular mobile games such as PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile, and Pokemon UNITE, are handling the development of the mobile version of Valorant, indicating that the game is in experienced hands.
ValorantMLeaks, a prominent leaker among the Valorant community on Twitter, has a track record of accurately revealing upcoming updates for the game. According to the latest leak from ValorantMLeaks, Riot Games and Tencent may be teaming up to develop the mobile version of Valorant. Although Riot Games is expected to publish the game, Tencent, the parent company of Riot, may participate in developing it. The leak has generated considerable interest and speculation among Valorant players and fans.
Riot Games has recently partnered with Tencent, which has generated considerable interest and excitement among fans of their popular titles. With Tencent’s extensive experience and impressive game development track record, many fans feel reassured about the future of Riot Games.
While Riot is not simply planning a direct port of their existing games, they are instead developing a new game from scratch, optimized specifically for mobile platforms such as Android and iOS. Experts anticipate this approach will lead to a more streamlined and optimized mobile gaming experience for players.
What is the expected release date of Valorant Mobile?
Valorant Mobile’s release date is a topic of great interest to many gamers, but there is no official announcement from Riot Games yet. Although Riot initially announced the mobile version in 2021, they have encountered significant development challenges, as gameplay tests are still ongoing.
In a recent statement, Anna Donlon, the executive producer of Valorant, acknowledged the development challenges and emphasized Riot’s commitment to releasing a fully polished game, even if it takes a little longer. Rushinder Sinah, the CEO of Global Esports, stated that they do not anticipate the release date to be in 2023, but Riot may provide updates in mid-2023.
Although fans may be eagerly anticipating the release of Valorant Mobile, they will have to wait at least a year or more for the open beta.
